Avaya sets new Gartner recognition record
Avaya has set a new record as the only vendor to be positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Centre Infrastructure for 14 years in a row.
With this year’s release of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Centre Infrastructure, Avaya continues to be the only company that has consistently appeared in this quadrant since the report’s inception in 2001.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant report evaluates contact centre vendors on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. The annual Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Centre Infrastructure covers vendors that provide equipment, software and services to operate contact centres used for customer, employee and service support, including outbound telemarketing, helpdesks and other structured communications operations.
The 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Centre Infrastructure finds that “contact centremanagers prefer to purchase much, or all, of their contact centre infrastructure from a single source as a bundle in pursuit of easier and enduring integration, cradle-to-grave integrated reporting, and easier system management. Therefore leading contact centre infrastructure vendors offering complete portfolios of solutions, comprising theirown products and those of partners and other strategic suppliers, are being favored,” according to the report.
Over the past year, Avaya increased its emphasis on enabling companies to master the “omni-channel” customer experience. The omni-channel customer experience integrates all aspects of multichannel customer service – from proactive and self-service, through assisted support, reporting, management and optimisation — to eliminate fragmented, disjointed service that impacts brand loyalty, value and revenue.
